Photography ~ Finding Inspiration

Macro Photography

If you are a creative type, where do you find your inspiration? Who lights or inspires you to study in a certain direction, technique, or subject? One of my inspirations are the large flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), artist and ‘Mother of American Modernism’.

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” ~ (Georgia O’Keeffe).

No… I cannot draw or paint and I am not anywhere in comparison to O’Keeffe’s art, but I do have a camera and the desire. She inspires me to keep working on my images, including this one of my many flowers. There are always such surprises and beauty found in their structures and essence. Like many other artists, progressive improvement is the end goal throughout it all and to keep working at it, no matter your medium.

Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.

This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.
